We went to the Stanley Hotel over the 4th of July weekend. We stayed in Estes Park for the week and decided to end our last day in Estes Park at the Stanley. We loved the whole experience. We initially went up early and explored the hotel on the 4th to watch the fireworks over Lake Estes. The carnival was fun and fireworks were wonderful!
We stayed on a Sunday night and booked two rooms. We traveled with my mother-in-law, 4 kids, my husband and myself. We did book a history tour for the younger kids and a ghost tour for the teens. It was fun, but we did not experience anything paranormal. In regards to the rooms, no air, but we lucked out and it was a beautiful night out, so was not a big deal. We were on the second floor and did not experience anything, but we did get a chance to explore and we loved it there. I actually have to say I found the hotel very beautiful, peaceful and the staff was great.
If you get a chance, the bar in the hotel has an AWESOME bacon bloody mary drink.. must have!! And Jimmy, the mix-master, was awesome! The mom-in-law and I snuck away while my husband took the kids exploring, so we got a chance to have a few drinks in the evening and then were able to enjoy breakfast on the porch.
One last thing, no pool, so that was kind of a bummer. Hopefully it will re-open next time, but I thought I heard it was being filled in. Great hotel, lots of history and would definitely go again. Yes, it is a little pricey, but worth it.
